Hey Roku, where's YouTube?

Tue May 15, 2018 3:42 pm

This is getting totally ridiculous.
Now Roku is policing Google/YouTube?
My Roku updated YouTube then it was gone.....replaced by an anti privacy warning.
Is it time to move on from Roku's altogether?
I watched Youtube more than any other channel.

Just saw this in another post as well. I'm using YouTube right now with no issue. And I did a check for updates before I started anything. Sounds suspiciously like the Roku servers might have been hacked.

My YouTube disappeared too, and nary a word from Roku. They need to fix this or I will happily move on to FireTV stick.

Happy National Streaming Day!

No YouTube.

Either Roku or the FBI have a pretty crappy sense of humor. I’m guessing both.

Same here. Also, Britbox is gone with a piracy warning.

Man, you people are quick to assume Roku doesn't like you anymore, and is therefore stealing your favorite channels.

Technical issues happen. Most likely this is an error on somebody's side, and will be resolved soon. If this really was a case of Youtube being gone from Roku, there'd be some news stories about it, with reasons why.
